House Cup 2015 Hufflepuff

Oh gosh, feels all around. I loved reading about drunk Tonks, she was so adorable. I love that she was comfortable enough around Remus to simply be herself, and to straight up tell him how she feels. It does indeed take a lot of courage and strength to tell the truth, and in this case, I think it says a lot about their relationship. Confessing your love is definitely an event that's prone to cause a bit of awkwardness, so the fact that she was able to tell him, again, that she loved him without worrying that it would change things. I think it's a really strong foundation for their relationship when they do eventually get together.

God, and the end! I didn't realize until the end that this was after Sirius had died, and that just brought the whole thing to another level. I loved Remus's thoughts about Sirius at the end. It's very much like Sirius to spill the beans on that little secret, and I thought the bit about the Dog Star was heartwrenchingly beautiful.

Good work!

Author's Response: Drunk Tonks is one of my new favourite things :D It does give her a lot of strength and courage to admit to her feelings... a lot more than I would have had.

Yep, it killed me to have him dead (in my heart he is still alive and married to me :P) and I could always imagine that Sirius had a little word with Remus repeatedly about Tonks.

Thank you so much!

Hufflepuff House Cup 2015 Review

I like the way that you start this out. You know that with Remus this story is going to be angst all over the face, and so starting by describing the revelry of the party really creates a strong point of contrast.

“Alcohol had been opened” doesn’t quite work. You would generally be more specific about what kind of alcohol it is, because nobody is drinking straight alcohol.

Some of your statements seem redundant, as they are stating things that the reader has already deduced. For example, “the magical boundaries that had been set around the home were enough for Remus to be out here alone, or as alone as he was before someone came and joined him” and “He heard Tonks coming out of the back door and walking towards him, the sound of her feet walking on the grass met his ears, and he could tell that she was coming towards him.”

Drunk Tonks is pretty cute. I mean, she’s clumsy enough sober…

The way that Remus speaks seems sort of childish in this, the way that stubbornly retorts. I actually like this, because it plays on the idea of the grown Marauders all still being children at heart.

You are missing end quotes on “I told you, Tonks.”

I found this story really sweet, and was pleased to find that it was actually more on the cute side than the angsty side. Remus deserves that every now and then.


Author's Response: Thank you Sam :D oh yeah, so much angst with Remus.

Whoops, thank you for pointing those out for me, I shall go back and edit those in.

Drunk Tonks should just sit down and not move because she's just going to hurt herself haha.

They're totally still children at heart :P

Thank you so much, and I'm so glad that you liked it. :D

Review #4, by Courtney Dark Glance beyond the stars

Hey! Thank you so much for entering the Uncomfortable Challenge!

This was such a sweet, adorable one-shot! It was so much fun to read and made me feel all warm and happy inside! Which is definitely a good thing, considering it is rather cold today and snowing heavily outside.

Anyway, I really loved the conversation between Tonks and Remus. I think you characterized them both perfectly - which I'm guessing (I've never written about Remus or Tonks so I wouldn't know) would be a bit of a challenge, as we don't really know a lot about their relationship. I especially liked your portrayal of Remus - trying to deny and forget his feelings for Tonks.

And then the mention of Sirius and the Dog Star at the end was just so perfect, it melted my heart! I really felt for poor Remus, being the only marauder left - well, there's Peter, but he's a complete rat, so he doesn't really count!

Anyway, this was a great one-shot, I really enjoyed it!


Author's Response: That's alright, it was a brilliantly awesome challenge and I had a lot of fun! :D

Thank you, I'm glad that it made you feel warm and happy inside, I wanted to have a cute one shot between Remus and Tonks, I don't think that they have many moments to be like that during the war.

Thank you, I've never written them before so I was really worried about how I would get them across.

Ah that part melted my heart too, I hadn't planned it until Remus was looking up at the sky and it just hit me. Oh no, Peter doesn't count at all!

Thank you so much! :D

Review #5, by AlexFan Glance beyond the stars

17th January 2014:
I can't stop smiling, my cheeks are hurting because I'm smiling so much, this was so unbelievably adorable that I really loved it and just I can't even.

I don't read a lot of Remus/Tonks fanfiction (which is to say, none at all) but if they're all going to be as sweet as this I'm on board for more fanfiction about them. This was so cute and adorable and I loved the characterization.

I love how you showed Remus's insecurities, it was so wonderful seeing this from his point of view because we know that Remus is insecure and doesn't think that he's good enough for Tonks but it's always lovely to actually see why he feels that way. I wanted to give Remus just a big hug when I was reading the paragraph talking about how he wished Tonks wouldn't fight him whenever he told her that he couldn't be with her because he wasn't good enough.

Remus, you are good enough and everyone thinks so!

I loved how Tonks kept pushing and pushing though, she definitely wouldn't take no for an answer and that's what I love about her, she refuses to back down from what she wants. I loved how she kept telling Remus that he was for sure going to marry her one day no matter how much he denied it.

But yeah, I just really loved this one-shot and the ending was so wonderful what with the star twinkling back.

Okay, I'm done gushing for now. Good luck in the challenge, results should be soon.

Author's Response: This is by far the best review! I am so glad that this story has made you smile so much! :D I love you for leaving the best review! *hugs*

I must admit that I don't read it either and I have never written it before either, maybe I should write more and continue their cuteness?

Poor Remus, I imagined him to be very insecure about everything and love, he has his reasons. Poor him! I think Remus needs a really big hug from us all and he needs to see that Tonks is perfect for him!

Tonks is so going to make him see that she's perfect for him, he just needs some nudging in the right direction. :D

Thank you so so so much for your amazingly kind and brilliant and lovely and awesome review! I now have the biggest smile on my mouth because of you :D

Your challenge was awesome and I'm so glad that I got a chance to take part in it,so thank you. :D

Review #6, by TheSortingHat Glance beyond the stars

6th January 2014:
This review is for Day 10 of the 12 Days of Reviewing.

That was adorable. Simple, lovely, and utterly adorable. I thought that you managed to capture two relationships perfectly and concisely--Remus and Tonks' romantic love, and Remus and Sirius' brotherly affection. I thought that you really captured the struggle Lupin feels between his feelings for Tonks and his desire for what is best for her, all mixed together with his sorrow over Sirius' death. Seriously, using the star was an absolute stroke of genius.

I thought that stylistically, the story flowed well and conveyed everything it needed to fully and concisely--often, it can be difficult to accomplish both of those at once. This story was truly heart-warming, and would bring a smile to the face of anyone who doesn't have a heart made of cardboard. So props to you!


Author's Response: Wooo! I love reviews!

Thank you so much! I'm so glad that you thought it was adorable, I did love writing cute Remus and Tonks so I might have to write some more. I'm so glad that you thought I had captured Remus and Tonks so well, that has made me so happy, I get so worried writing canon characters because I'm scared that I won't do them justice.

Aw you are seriously amazing! I wanted to include the star without making it cliche, I imagined that Remus spent so much time keeping an eye on the night sky because of the moon that he would always look for Sirius's star, in fact I could imagine him doing that with Sirius when Sirius was still alive.

Thank you so very very much! Your review is heart-warming, your review has given me the biggest smile.

Thank you for the brilliant review. :D

Review #7, by MissesWeasley123 Glance beyond the stars

5th January 2014:
Hello! Here for day 10 of the 12 Days of reviewing. Ronks has always been close to me, and it was so nice to read this.

Tonks was amazing. She was exactly how she was in the books and it reminded me of what I missed in the movies from Natalie Tena. Everything was perfect to be honest. She was funny and I always thought she would be the one in more control and I suppose the one in charge in their relationship. That was very sweet. Drunk Tonks was so very we done as well. It was brilliant.

I am always so mesmerized by people who can write Remus and you did h brilliantly. He's just too sweet and I honestly love him. The end part was beautiful, because I loved that, that friendship he has with Sirius. That was beautiful.

This is such a nice piece. You are truly talented at writing. It's so hard to make someone remember and you did just that. Great work!

Author's Response: HEY!!! I must say that I really enjoyed writing Ronks, I have never written them before and I think that I might have to write them a bit more.

Yay! That has seriously made my day! I was so worried that I wasn't portraying them right so to hear that I have has made me so happy. :D You're so kind with your amazing words!

Aw seriously I'm going to cry from your awesomely amazing review :D And I wanted to have a connection with Sirius, I could imagine that Remus would spend his time looking up at the stars and remembering Sirius.

Thank you so very very much *hugs* You're so amazing and your review was so wonderful, just thank you so much!

Review #8, by UnluckyStar57 Glance beyond the stars

5th January 2014:
*sings* On the Tenth Day of the Twelve Days of Reviewing, I gave you a review! *stops singing, looks sheepish, and gets on with the actual reviewing part*

I've been reading a lot of Tonks today, but this is the first time that I've seen Tonks and Remus by themselves. I thought that they were incredibly cute, and despite Remus' reluctance, he knows that he wants to be Tonks' husband.

Ah, Sirius. He helps out even when he's not there. I love that Sirius told Tonks that Remus liked her, because that linked Remus back to his old Marauder days. The twinkling of the Dog Star at the end was a very nice touch.

This was a great story! Good luck in the challenges!


Author's Response: *Sings along and dances along to the lyrics*

Yay! They're cute! I could imagine them being a cute couple together when Remus would let Tonks close to him. Remus wants to be with Tonks he just needs some reassurance and gentle shoving in the right direction.

Yep, cheeky little Sirius helping, I would imagine that he wanted to see Remus happy, Remus deserves happiness.

I'm so glad that you liked this story so much, and thank you so much for reviewing! :D

Review #9, by patronus_charm Glance beyond the stars

5th January 2014:
Hey Tammi! Here for the 12 days of reviewing and Ronks is my OTP so I couldn’t resist :D

Ah this one-shot was so great because it covered so many emotions in so few words and it was such a great read because I thought you pulled off this pairing really well.

Tonks was wonderful with the way she was sort of bullying Remus into marrying him :P I really loved how you characterised her as it really reminded me of how she appeared in the books, and it was just pulled off so well. I could spend all day gushing away about it because she just made me laugh and she worked so well with your Remus and it was great because she provided the lighter moments needed for this story.

Remus was really excellent too :P Even though I was a little annoyed with him going down the usual path of him saying that he couldn’t marry Tonks and all that jazz, it worked well with his natural characterisation, and the way you kept the two of them so in character was really great. I really enjoyed his narration for another reason too because, unlike Tonks, he was a lot more aware of his surroundings and paid attention to them which was a nice interlude with the dialogue.

The comments about Sirius were really great even if they did make me feel as if I wanted to tear up from time to time :P I think it was the just line about the star almost twinkling at him which got to me because I rarely see that closeness portrayed between them in a non-Wolfstar way, so it was lovely to see it in a purely platonic way too.

I liked the ending because though we could pretty well guess what happened it still left a nice bit of curiosity over how Tonks finally persuaded Remus. This was such a great one-shot, Tammi, and I’m so glad I read it!


Author's Response: Heya Kiana!!

You have seriously made my day so much with this amazing review! I honestly can't stop smiling when I read it.

Cheeky little Tonks, she knows what she wants and she knows that Remus just needs some gentle shoving in the right direction. :P

Awww I could spend all day gushing about this wonderful review that I love!

Oh Remus, he needs to stop feeling sorry for himself and accept the love he deserves!

I'm so very glad that you liked my characterisations of them, I was worried that I wasn't going to write them in a believable way, so to hear that I have has made me so happy.

I wanted to put Sirius in there, I imagined that he really wanted them to get together, I think he's a definite Tonks/Remus shipper. :D Awww don't tear up, although I'm sad that Sirius is gone, but he'll always be in the stars. *hugs*

Thank you so very much Kiana for your wonderfully amazing review!!! :D
